Transcription Training Course

ABOUT Sara McGrath

Sara McGrath
I'm mom to 3 girls. I live near Seattle and write articles, do transcription, and write books.



After working as a general transcriptionist for years, I created this efficient and inexpensive Transcription Training Course. Many years ago, when my children were babies, I completed a highly-regarded, but very expensive ($2,000) medical transcription training course. It served me well. I'm still doing transcription work today.

However, after transcribing for years and training others, I decided it was time for my company, Northwest Typing Service, to offer affordable transcription training services incorporating the abundance of free online resources I've collected over the years. This allows me to eliminate a lot of the cost of more expensive training programs like the one I completed. I paid for a large box full of print materials, books, cassettes, and equipment that I could have found on the Web.

In this Transcription Training Course, I'll share those resources with you, along with everything you need to know to get started in a home-based transcription career. The course includes a downloadable instruction manual that takes you step-by-step through the process of learning to transcribe, improving typing skills, using software and equipment, using online references and tools, and finding home-based transcription work or starting your own business. Upon completion, you'll receive a certificate from Northwest Typing Service.

I paid thousands of dollars for my transcription training, which included boxes full of binders, reference books, and cassettes that I could have found online. I spent two years doing repetitive exercises and studying extraneous terminology and grammar. Transcription really is a simple skill consisting mainly of quick and accurate typing and following formatting guidelines. By taking advantage of the abundance of free online resources and my experience working as both a Legal Transcriptionist and General Transcriptionist as well as training others, I can offer you this quick, efficient, and inexpensive Transcription Training Course at a fraction of the cost of other courses.
